FABDEM (Forest And Buildings removed Copernicus DEM) lets you build powerful maps and 3D simulations of the Earth’s surface and accurately model natural hazards. Derived from Copernicus GLO 30 and built using machine learning methods, FABDEM is the first global digital elevation model to remove forests and buildings at a 30-meter resolution to give a true picture of ground-level terrain. Developed in tandem with the University of Bristol, FABDEM’s high-resolution digital terrain data ensure it is valuable across the insurance and engineering sectors, and for GIS mapping and geospatial analysis.
